PLEASE NOTE
All teams will be using thier Spring 2023 Rosters when participating in the 2023 Brooklyn Queens World Qualifiers.  These tournaments are technically an extension of the Spring Session.  This the same every year for all APA teams across the Nation, Canada and Japan.  

Teams that advance to Vegas to play in the 2023 World Pool Championships will also be playing with their Spring 2023 Rosters in Vegas!  Your summer 2023 roster will have no effect on these tournaments or Vegas as the summer always marks the start of a brand new league year for the awards for 2024.
